    Question Questions about very small motherboard for intel core 2 with PCI E

    Hi, i hope to get an old NES console and convert it to a PC casing

    is there a small motherboard (mini atx and smaller) that has PCI-E expansion for graphics card and supports Intel core 2 duo or faster?

    surely the NES is too low for a graphic cards, I need to tilt it , so I gather i need somekind of PCI-E cable or riser?

    (waiting patiently for starcraft 2 and diablo 3..........)

    If you can fit micro-ATX (245mm x 245mm) then the world is your oyster plenty of options, check out the DFI P45 JR, the G45 and G33/35 boards.

    If you are more limited on space then mini-ITX may be your only option (170mm x 170mm) and prepare to get your wallet reduced.

    You have the MSI Fuzzy GM965 takes mobile processors though so it will cost a fair amount for sure.

    Commell LV-678 desktop processor and has PCIe 16x slot.

    Or this MSI

    Sure the are others but be prepared to spend £150+ for the motherboard
